THE HONORABLE RON JOHNSON
United States Senator for Wisconsin
Both of Ron Johnson's parents were born and raised on farms. Their work ethic and small-town values were naturally passed along to their own children. As a result, he has worked hard all his life. As a boy, Johnson mowed lawns, shoveled snow, delivered papers, and caddied for a few extra bucks. At the age of 15, he obtained his first tax-paying job as a dishwasher in a Walgreens grill. Johnson rose through the ranks as a soda jerk, fry cook, and finally night manager before reaching the age of 16.
Johnson came to Washington because the federal government is bankrupting America. He thinks it is important for citizen legislators to ally with those who are seriously facing that reality. Johnson's manufacturing background has taught him to attack the root cause of a problem, not mere symptoms. He believes huge deficits, slow economic activity, high unemployment and woefully inadequate job creation are severe symptoms of the problem--but not the root cause. The ever expanding size, scope and cost of government is.
